I would focus first on building up lean mass

With a greater amount of lean tissue in your body, you can burn fat at a greater rate when u get onto your cutting cycle.

If you tried to lose the fat first, you might end up losing muscle mass as well. It'd be akin to trying to burn fuel with a smaller engine - it'd take more time

hope this helps

what's the nutrient breakdown?

You might wanna replace MRP's with real food.

Are you living in japan or something? your meal plan looks abit like Sebi's

carb/protein/fat?

Real food works better than supps. Anyone else on this board will tell u that too. I used to think otherwise, until i got my senses knocked into me

Bulk up first. Qea is right, you will be able to burn more calories at rest if you have more muscle on your frame. Also, if you are drinking it is going to be more difficult to cut anyway, so unless you are going to give that up for a while I'd definitely go with the bulking.
